Innovation prize goes to Mercedes-Benz Unimog
The "Privatbahn Magazin" has been published for ten years now and honours the Mercedes-Benz road-railer Unimog U 423 (street/rail) with the Innovation prize in the category “ Energy and Environment”. The coveted trophy was handed over on the 9th Mai 2017 at the transport logistic in Munich from Prof. Dr. Uwe Höft (right), Publisher of the “Privatbahn Magazin”, to Holger Doth (left), Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks. The expert jury was particularly impressed by the Unimog and its environmental compatibility and economy compared with conventional diesel shunting locomotives. The focus was on the drive system with the 5.1 litre diesel four-cylinder OM 934 LA Euro VI engine rated at 170 kW (231 hp).
